"A Wonderful Addition to the Christiansen Series"

EVERGREEN might just be a novella but it sure does pack a punch. It is filled with love, forgiveness, and life's many ups and downs. Ingrid and John Christiansen have just become empty nesters. Neither one of them is looking forward to the holiday season. To top it off, they have been given the task of being in charge of the live nativity at their church! John really wants to take Ingrid away for the holidays but Ingrid wants nothing to do with it. Just when life seems to be at its toughest, Butter, their family dog gets sick and needs very expensive surgery. What could possibly happen next?

Ingrid's sister calls. They haven't spoken in over sixteen years. She has always been a hot mess and has had a rough life. She is calling to ask Ingrid if she would take her son, Romeo in for a little while as she needs to go to rehab. Romeo is sixteen years old and has grown up mostly without a dad. Once Romeo gets there, he isn't too happy about the situation and misses his mom, but he eventually warms up to Ingrid and John. Romeo fills a deep need in Ingrid but what about when he leaves and goes back to his mom? Will she suffer a broken heart once again?

I highly recommend EVERGREEN to any readers of the Christiansen Family series, or anyone who loves Christian fiction in general. EVERGREEN is an awesome addition to the series and I can't wait to read the rest. If you haven't read the previous books in the series, you could read EVERGREEN as a stand alone. Susan May Warren does a great job of giving you enough detail as to what happened previously, that you don't feel lost while reading.

Filled with family and love, EVERGREEN will keep you turning the pages until the very last one to see what happens.

An empty nest has Ingrid Christiansen dreading the upcoming holidays, but her husband, John, couldn’t be more excited about this new season of life. He even has a surprise trip abroad planned. He’s sure she’ll love it. What’s more romantic than Christmas in Paris?

Before he can stop her, however, Ingrid agrees to spearhead a major church project. Then their faithful dog, Butterscotch, needs emergency surgery, draining their savings. And then—because disasters strike in threes—an unexpected guest arrives, dredging up old hurts.

As a beautiful blanket of snow transforms the north woods into a winter wonderland, a deep chill settles over John and Ingrid’s marriage. With the holidays fast approaching, their only hope of keeping their love evergreen depends on turning the page on the past and embracing a new chapter of their future.
